Original Message Sources say former Fox News host Tucker Carlson is gearing up to push the outlet into letting him continue his career elsewhere.

Lawyer Bryan Freedman, whom Carlson retained for the contract dispute, said the notion Carlson’s voice would be silenced was “beyond preposterous,” Axios reported Sunday.

The outlet said Fox hopes to sideline Carlson by offering him $20 million a year not to work, adding he is “busy plotting a media empire of his own. But he needs Fox to let him out of his contract, which expires in January 2025 — after the presidential election.”

“Axios has learned that Carlson and Elon Musk had a conversation about working together, but didn’t discuss specifics,” the outlet reported.

In April, Fox announced it was parting ways with Carlson who previously hosted the popular show, Tucker Carlson Tonight. The decision came as a surprise, according to Breitbart News.

Meanwhile, the outlet reported Wednesday that ratings had plummeted after Carlson left the network.

“During its 8 p.m. hour, the network has dropped from a three million viewer average to a 1.65 million viewer average since the departure of Tucker Carlson; the hour was previously filled by Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade, which will then be filled by Fox News personality Lawrence Jones,” the article read.

In a video posted after his departure, Carlson said that one thing he noticed after taking time off was how “unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are,” calling them “completely irrelevant.”

War, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources. When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues?” he asked:
